AN INSTANTNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERoA NATIONAL INDIE BESTSELLER
In this powerful novel set in a divided Naples by Elena Ferrante, theNew York Times best-selling author ofMy Brilliant Friend, fourteen-year-old Giovanna is searching for her reflection in two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: Naples of the heights, which wears a mask of refinement, and Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity, where her guide is the unforgettable Aunt Vittoria.
With this new novel about the passage from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, Ferrante gives her readers another gripping, highly addictive, Neapolitan story.
"Another spellbinding coming-of-age tale from a master."--People Magazine
